Description

It only takes a small spark to ignite a child's mind! The ABCs of Oceanography introduces babies (and grownups!) to a new oceanographic concept for every letter of the alphabet—all the way from atmosphere to gulf stream to zooplankton. With a tongue-in-cheek approach that adults will love, this installment of the Baby University board book series is the perfect way to introduce basic concepts to even the youngest ocean explorers.
